3. Indiana Fever: Kalani Brown, 6’7 C, Baylor
So: Kim Mulkey repeatedly took exception to the idea that Kalani Brown wasn’t mobile enough. It matters to Pokey Chatman, you can be sure, whose Fever finished ninth in pace, even though Pokey loves to run. But more important, Indiana finished last in the WNBA in rebounding percentage, last in block percentage, and dearly needs a big to address these issues. Moreover, while Teaira McCowan is a better fit for those specific areas of need, they also landed in last place in offensive rating, suggesting that whoever they find to play the five needs to provide offensive versatility. All of this points to Brown, a smart, capable basketball player who has already added the trail three to her repertoire, and has the bloodlines and will to maximize what she can be in Indiana. Says here that Chatman can bring Brown’s game to another level.
